You can't beat the view of the bay, the ships, and shoreline up & down Kemah. Sitting on the balcony while reading and listening to the waves hit the shore is great! To address the "the NO breakfast" complaint- The reservation information supplied before one ever commits clearly states that a "breakfast basket" with fruit & pastries is provided. This is great for those who cannot stand to have to go downstairs and sit with strangers to eat breakfast cooked by the owners of a house. To address the "almost too quiet" complaint- The more secluded and alone, the better. We loved it that hardly anyone else was there. (No staff stays on the premises.) It is unfortunate that the room was not cleaned and properly stocked for one customer's stay. Hopefully, this was a one time event. Our room was clean & well-stocked. When we noticed that we had a few lightbulbs out, I called and left a message with the office. Someone came & replaced the bulbs within a few hours. Our only complaint was the the A/C filter was almost stopped up and needed changed badly. Housekeeping came by with a filter, but it was wrong size. Hopefully, problem is fixed by now. Something that could be improved- Housekeeping does not clean your room daily. You have to take out your own trash and breakfast was not provided for our 2nd night. Our room fortunately had extra towels & washclothes, so it was not a problem for us. I would recommend this place to anyone as long as you are alright with climbing stairs.
